Hmmm, after a quite a bit of deliberation, I think I'm leaning towards a 35mm prime as my next lens. My husband nearly had a heart attack when he saw the price of the 1.4 though. I can't find many negative comments on this lens at all- in fact most are raving about it.
Background info to my decision making process is here:
Sorry to create another thread, but I thought I might catch the eye of 35mm owners better this way.
Can you supply me with as many comments/evidence that supports why this would be a good purchase, so maybe I can twist my husband's arm? (I noticed Bill aka englishw on here was worried about his wife's reaction to purchasing a 70-200... so I guess I'm not alone!) We have the cash, but I don't think he understands how such a little lens can be worth more than half my 70-200. FYI: I have a 350D (1.6 crop factor), Toki 12-24 and the 70-200 Canon which is Bill's recent purchase causing him so much grief. I do a lot of landscape work but also getting more into portrait stuff too.
Would the 35mm F/2 be a huge step down?
Are there any comparible non-Canon lenses that I could consider?
Thanks in advance.
